SHOW TIME: Commuun, the rising eco-oriented, Paris-based brand designed by Japanese duo Kaito Hori and Iku Furudate, will be staging its first show this October. The brand recently scooped up two Andam awards from LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Longchamp that will help finance the show. "The collection will be much lighter with lots of transparency," commented Hori. Since starting out in 2006, Commuun has sold its clothes in stores such as Corso Como 10 in Italy and Dover Street Market. New accounts tapped since the launch of the brand's first pre-collection for spring 2008 include L'Eclaireur in Paris and Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.
